Red White and Blue

The challenge on Polkadoodles this week is

Red White and Blue

It is also our stashbox stamp week, which means the design team can use any make of stamp for their card. I picked this adorable little girl by Lili of the Valley, coloured with Promarkers.
I had this idea in my head that I wanted to use the papers from the Fathers Day download from Polkadoodles for a pretty, girly card, I think it worked - do you?

I find when using red markers that the colouring can be overwhelming on something like a dress, so I just shaded in very lightly and used my blender pen to even it out - it gives the impression of red without dominating the image
The sentiment is by Stampin Up
